Norwalk, CT—October 25, 2016—TMC and Crossfire Media today announced Connected Building and Cities content at IoT Evolution Conference and Expo being held February 7-10, 2017 at the Greater Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The event will feature a robust exhibit floor, powerful keynotes, case studies, live demos, unique sessions, special events, networking opportunities and much more.

The buzz around IoT revolves around the consumer, but the significant revenue impact will be seen in the enterprise.
